Stayed here for one night. Very convenient for Athlone and yet not in the town itself. Friendly lady in charge. Glasson is a nice village, and very easy walking distance. House is clean, warm and well presented. A bit more heat in the lounge at night would just finish the whole thing off nicely.

While this B&B is in walking distance of downtown Glasson, there is very little choice in pub or restaurant nearby, as Glasson is very small. However, with that being said, it was certainly a lovely place to stay! The place was clean, modern, and Theresa was a fantastic hostess. She even made me pancakes one morning! The room was very...

Been there on August, 6th, 2011 and what to say?. Excelent rooms, excelent location and very good breakfast. We arrived a little late (around 19:30) but there was Teresa waiting for us. We also visited Glasson Village Restaurant, very close to the B&B, and it was superb

This B n B was conveniently located for us as we travelled across Ireland towards County Mayo. The rooms are good,everything you need in them, and the breakfast is good too. (I loved the scrambled egg with smoked salmon!) It is easy to walk into Glasson where there is plenty of choice of places to eat.

We made reservations the night before, and specified what time we would be arriving the following day. When we arrived Teresa, our hostess, seemed a bit annoyed by our arrival. The house is clean and the bedrooms were nice. You have to ring a bell to speak with either host, and don't expect fresh tea or snacks. There is a...

Every need semed to have been thought of, hooks where they were needed, hangers, tea making, TV, pristine towels, powerful shower. Teresa kindly arranged a local taxi for us and helped with arranging a return ride as well. Breakfast was lovely and...

My sister in law and I stayed for a couple of nights to break the journey between the west coast and Dublin. Our room was spotless and spacious. Very comfortable beds. Breakfast was superb. We were not sure where to eat the first night but Theresa recommended a couple of places and even rang and booked us a table. I...

I traveled with my parent. It was our first time staying in a Irish B&B. It will not be our last. The house was spotless and we were looking after very good. The breakfasts were freshly cooked and had a good choice. The area has some fine bars and restaurants and a golf course 2Km away. We stayed 2 nights...

The landlady insisted that I leave a family wedding dinner at 6pm to collect the keys. She would not let us collect the keys at 9pm as we had requested. Having paid €20 on a taxi to collect the keys I arrived and waited for 5 minutes for her to answer the door. When she arrived she was very gruff....

good location, good breakfast. a lot of attention to detail. however, uncomfrotable greeting from the owner, whose welcome seemed very forced, like we were disturbing her. a couple of little things made me feel like i was a nusisance rather than a valued customer. For example, she asked what time we want breakast. we asked what time it is served....
